SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) - Republican candidate for governor Neel Kashkari spent $4.4 million on his primary race to defeat a Tea Party candidate for second place but reports having less than $200,000 in his campaign account at the end of the race.

That's less than 1 percent of the more than $22 million than Gov. Jerry Brown has in his bankroll. The Democratic governor filed his report last week showing he spent just $270,000 in the June primary election.

The report Kashkari filed with the secretary of state Thursday shows he has raised less than $400,000 in the final weeks before the June primary election, while spending nearly $1.7 million.

Republican Tim Donnelly, who came in third in the primary, ended his campaign about $76,000 in debt after spending more than $700,000.
